Three yarmulke wearing Jewish youths were brutally assaulted on Saturday night by a mob of over a dozen who beat them with hammers and Iron bars. The incident took place in Villeurbanne, near Lyon in southeast France. French blogs reported that the crime was carried out by Islamic youths.
The victims were hospitalized suffering various wounds and were subsequently released according to French newspaper L’Express. Police forces have begun a manhunt in search of the suspects.
On Sunday the Interior Ministry said that they believe the assault to be motivated by antisemitism.
Minister Manuel Valls, denounced the attack in a statement calling the act “extremely serious” and “a deliberate attack against our republican model that should enable everyone, without distinction, to live freely and safely expressing his religious affiliation “.
The assault comes just months following the brutal massacre of four by an Islamic terrorist at a Jewish school in Toulouse.
In reaction to the incident, French Jewish artist Ron Agam told the Algemeiner that, “It is about time now for the French authorities to radically search for these Imams and put a stop to the brainwashing on tens of thousands of Muslim kids in France.”
Good luck with that.
Atlas added this on the mob attack:
Of course, the AFP description of the jihadists is at the bottom of the article. Here again we find the media identifying the terrorists by nationality. Geography has as much to do with it it as the color of their pants. It is ideology. The ideology behind these attacks is carefully omitted out of respect to the blasphemy laws under the sharia (do not criticize Islam). Instead, “North African origin” is the laughable label. Once again, geography is used instead of motive. In the UK, “Asian” is the euphemism for Muslim. In France it’s “youth” or “immigrant youth” (despite being second or third generation), and now “north African origin”; in Denmark it’s “immigrant.” In the US, the enemedia identifies jihadists and terrorists by nationality (as if that were relevant). Nationality is as relevant as the color of the underwear bomber’s drawers.
It. is Islam. Period.
